SpaceX Rocket Misses Landing Pad and Falls Into the Ocean

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lands in ocean after successful cargo launch

Сегодня к МКС отправят Falcon 9 с грузовым космическим кораблем

This mission is NASA's 16th mission of SpaceX, which is part of a long-term contract to deliver supplies in space.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, which launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base carrying 64 "smallsats", set a record for most satellites strapped to a rocket booster, a stack more than 20 feet tall.

On Wednesday, SpaceX launched a Dragon cargo spacecraft destined for the International Space Station.

SpaceX has failed to land its Falcon 9 rocket on its landing pad at Cape Canaveral for the first time since it began recovering its Falcon 9 rockets.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk shared video on Twitter Wednesday of the rocket engines stabilizing the booster just in time for a splash landing soft enough to save it. After suffering from an apparent malfunction in one of its grid fins, the booster fell into the sea - but remained intact and will be retrieved.

The first stage rocket had separated normally several minutes after the lift-off, but as it approached the landing site, it started spinning rapidly.




'Appears to be undamaged & is transmitting data.

The Dragon cargo ship successfully made it to orbit, which was the primary goal of the launch.

"The first stage did land in the water", SpaceX spokesperson John Insprucker said during a live webcast. It was the first time a Falcon 9 booster had failed to make a ground landing.

NASA spokeswoman Megan Powers wrote in an email that Musk met with NASA deputy director of exploration and human operations Bill Gerstenmaier in Washington.

In order to reduce the cost of space transport, SpaceX has incorporated re-usable rockets, which can be reused. The mice and their habitat were loaded into spacecraft shortly before launch, but the spoiled food had to be replaced ahead of launch.
